Dotworkz Introduces World's Most Extreme Surveillance Camera Protection System

-- Effective Down to - 40°F, Dotworkz D2-XC Extends Surveillance Camera Life, Reduces Cold Weather Maintenance, Allows Video Surveillance In Areas Previously Not Possible --

SAN DIEGO, CA, November 14, 2007 -- Dotworkz, a worldwide leader in surveillance video monitoring equipment and design, today introduced its revolutionary new D2-XC camera enclosure equipped with the company's patented Ring of Fire heating system.

Able to prevent surveillance cameras from freezing in temperatures down to -40° F, the D2-XC is compatible with 99% of analog and IP PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) cameras, including models from Pelco, Axis, Sony, Toshiba and Canon.

"Standard enclosures may provide limited protection to cameras in mild climates, but they will ineffective in severe cold, resulting in expensive and potentially dangerous camera malfunctions," explained Will Ferris, President, Dotworkz. "The D2-XC with Ring of Fire is the only enclosure on the market that keeps cameras working in extreme cold. Anything less is a compromise security professionals can not afford to make."

Key to the success of the D2-XC is the Ring of Fire system. It provides constant warm airflow within the enclosure to safeguard the sophisticated electronics found in today's surveillance cameras, especially IP network models. Built-in defrosting removes snow and ice from the D2-XC's lower dome that would otherwise obstruct the camera's view, maintaining the ideal monitoring and recording situation.

The D2-XC's roomy interior easily accomodates routers, cell networks, hard drives, UPS, WiMAX and Mesh hardware. Thanks to this extra space, upgrades in the field are easily completed without additional complex wiring or the purchase of specialized additional enclosures. An included Dotworkz Rapid Link allows integration into 900, 5.8, 2.4 GHz wireless networks worldwide with a range of up to 20 miles.
